The robber was described as being 6-feet-5 and 230 pounds with black hair in corn rows and brown eyes. He wore a white shirt and gray shorts.
Alarm foils theft
PRINCETON -- A burglar alarm foiled a break-in Saturday at Woodard's Drug Store in downtown Princeton, Police Chief Eddie Lewis said Monday.
The thief smashed a door glass, the chief said, and when the alarm sounded, he fled. A citizen saw the suspect and the getaway car and gave a possible description.
The glass was shattered but did not fall in, Lewis said. The owner, Carlyle Woodard, said nothing was stolen.
